The joy of dancing

Let it go. yes, let it go.

I know you are wondering what sort of starting is that! What exactly am I trying to convey. Wait, hear me out before concluding me as a nutcase. I am asking you to let go of that heavy feeling in your heart or that mental pressure that has been building up for long. Just let go of the feeling of pain, resentment, anger, tension, worries. All the pessimistic energy you have been building up for all this time, let go of that. Untie your body from your mind, let your feet go freely like they have their mind of own, stretch your arms out and let them follow with the motion of your feet. The world around you has its own rhythm, feel it in your heart and sway with it. That rhythm will remind you of your own existence, your body which is owned by only you, no one else. So celebrate it because no one’s is judging you and who cares if anyone’s watching. This is your time, fill your body with joy and life, let go of negativeness, dance it out. Continue reading

Experience Real Togetherness

Piglet – “How do you spell ‘love’?”
Phoo – “You don’t spell it…you feel it.”
These are one of my favorite lines from A.A.Milne. But If I really have to spell love, I would spell it as T.I.M.E. Yes in a sense love can be spelled as time not as a quantity but as a quality. Giving your quality time to your loved ones is the best gift that not only makes the receiver feel special but giver feels content as well. Alas! Time is that precious thing that often eludes us. Weather we have a deadline to meet, take our meals, have a new job, complete the pending tasks, meet family or friends or go for a vacation, we find ourselves wishing for more time. Unfortunately we only have 24 hours a day, time is a limited commodity whereas love isn’t then why are we so restricted with giving love to people around us? I am not talking about family and friends, we all love them I can bet on it but I am talking about our neighbors, or people at workplace, or all those strange faces we see every morning when we go for a jog, or our environment. We are a part of a disconnected society, we don’t even know our neighbors properly. People don’t even help each other these days, may be they are less empathetic and have trust issues. Life is already complicated enough to invite more complications into it and that often stops us from knowing others and caring about them. 
We always complain that we don’t have enough love in our lives; we are constantly seeking for more. What if I tell you that the love we seek for is right here in our hearts, it’s always been there and it grows by giving. Building trust is a gradual process but giving love should come naturally.

Stayzilla: Make room for something new

Stayzilla was born in 2004 when 3 friends got together to bring online the value rooms under budget across India. Since then Stayzilla have seen many changes and came a long way. It doesn’t only let you book hotel rooms online but also have a very interesting feature which I must say is its main feature, renting out the unused rooms of your home as a host or rent other’s room for stay as a guest. You may ask why would one do that. Aren’t hotels good enough? Well let’s look it this way, don’t we all complain about not being able to eat homely food or miss home when we are away from our home. There’s your answer because one can find home away from home.

Recently I tried out Stayzilla App for android, So let’s see how it all works. Once the app is downloaded one has to sign up for it which is the regular signing up process. Or if you are an existing user then sign in to it. Thereafter one can either look for renting properties as a guest under guest view or register their property under host view. The UI (user interface) of the app is pretty easy to surf around and with a pleasant color pallet the experience gets better. Continue reading

Thou shalt laugh your hats off


Me: I went to a restaurant yesterday, there was this board hanging that said “Help Wanted” and just beneath it another board said “Self-service” so I did what any sane person would have done.

Miss Felicia: And what would that be?

Me: I hired myself. Since I was well qualified so I gave myself a raise and seeing my dedication I promoted myself. But you know I am not good at taking orders so I fired myself.

Miss Felicia *making a face, rolled her eyes*.

Did your hat go flying right out of the window? Did it? It didn’t! Well, that was a bummer but I warned you not to sit in a window-less room. You can’t blame me for trying my hands or rather humor at stand-up comedy which is totally hot these days, as in red-hottest-chili hot. Continue reading

Epic stand-up comedy fail #1

Standup comedy fail

I was trying my hands or rather skills on Stand-up comedy :o what a disaster it was *phew*, dodged few tomatoes and eggs (Thanks to matrix movie)

PS- Miss Felicia did laugh though, she said that me thinking that I am a good writer was funny enough!


Poster poem: Another love story

Poster poems, poem on love, love poems, Ankita Singhal,

I first wrote this poem in 2010 (Which you can read HERE), my very first Poetic-short-story when I started blogging. Miss Felicia, the expert adviser told me to create a poster of it and voilà! Hope you like it, feedback and comments are always welcome.

Stay Happy and keep smiling :)

Meet the new expert Adviser – Miss Felicia!

Hello my lovely readers, I am absolutely enthralled to introduce you all to my new (or first ever) expert adviser of this blog *Drumroll* Miss Felicia, who is absolutely charming. When I first saw her on television, I just screamed “It’s so fluffy!” Oops :o I meant I was so enchanted by her eyes and stature that I knew she is that treasure who will be my partner in crime if I were in need. Well, dang it! who am I kidding, I did scream “It’s so fluffy!!” Or was it Agnes who screamed? I guess it was indeed Agnes but she sounded a lot like me.

The plot twist of burned by Karen Marie Moning

burned by karen marie moning

Title: Burned #7
Series : Fever Series
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Pages: 475 paperback
Release : January 20th 2015
Genre: Fantasy | Paranormal | Urban-fantasy

It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.

MacKayla Lane would do anything to save the home she loves. A gifted sidhe-seer, she’s already fought and defeated the deadly Sinsar Dubh—an ancient book of terrible evil—yet its hold on her has never been stronger.

When the wall that protected humans from the seductive, insatiable Fae was destroyed on Halloween, long-imprisoned immortals ravaged the planet. Now Dublin is a war zone with factions battling for control. As the city heats up and the ice left by the Hoar Frost King melts, tempers flare, passions run red-hot, and dangerous lines get crossed.

Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.

It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.

This is not going to be a regular review but more of a talk about the book #7 Burned in Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Let’s go back to #6 book ‘Iced‘ first, it was released in 2012 and the readers were grossed out by the possible insinuated chemistry of Dani a fierce lively Fourteen-year-old girl and millennia-old-dashing-immortal Ryoden which probably made Karen Marie Moning (the author) change her plot for the next book and she pushed the publication date and Burned was released two years after Iced. (It’s my first fiction/fantasy/novel of this year) Continue reading

Tricolor exotic pasta platter: celebrating happiness

When I say the word ‘celebration’, what image dose your mind conjure? Don’t you see a joyous place filled with your family, friend and loved ones with lavish food to sooth your cravings. Isn’t that image too enticing for your taste buds! Celebration and food are two most essential tools that fill everyone’s life with exuberance and enthusiasm. They both complement each other and coexist. A celebration is not complete without food and every food is a celebration in itself. In real terms they are aspects that connect us to the profound meaning of life that is to be happy and help others to achieve the same happiness. Now, how can one help others to be happy? Simply by making them a part of our happiness especially those who aren’t as privileged as most of us. So, that’s why I decided to celebrate this 69th Independence day of India (15th August) with an underprivileged little girl along with my friends.

This blog post is an appeal to all those who are reading this, please share your happiness, celebrate your happiness with underprivileged kids as well, they need us. How many times have you seen a small child across a bakery looking longingly at it’s glass display, reach out and buy something for him, he will remember that for his life. We eat lavish exotic food all the time, share it with someone who can’t afford it and it’s taste will enhance ten folds for you.

Now back to the Independence day celebration, the first thing was to decide the menu as I planned to call them up at my home so that little girl would be more comfortable in homely simple environment. I think only my refrigerator can decide the menu so let’s take a look into it.
